But harder than your mother-in-law’s head.


A quick Giggle perusal indicates locust around 1700 and mesquite 2300

Add in desert dried and chains skate. Hammers and axes ping off it…not as crazy as ironwood…which coincidentally I just dropped in water and watched it sink. Crazy.

Both likely harder than your MILs head.🤷🏼‍♂️ I agree the janka scale doesn’t often tell the whole story. Environmental factors play a large role in the characteristics of a particular tree on a micro climate scale. I will say none of the trees in North America come close to something like Ipe (Brazilian walnut) or Cumaru (Brazilian teak). Trying to saw or work those species is an exercise in frustration.
